Thursday 22 April – To the Abbey

IMG_4452compToday’s highlight was undoubtedly the Hexham Abbey hustings. Personally I also greatly enjoyed the Sung Evensong beforehand, using the Book of Common Prayer. The language of that service is familiar to many, many generations of my family. There’s a line in it towards the end: “by Thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night”, which reminds me of how not so long ago peoplIMG_4448compe used to literally dread the hours of darkness.

I was really pleased by how well Guy did in the debate, scoring several direct hits. Steven Ford did well too, with many sharp responses, and a lot better than in the last debate I went to, back in December.

Earlier on I was out canvassing Corbridge with Elly Jupp, who came all the way up from Exeter to help out Guy. She’s well experienced in the world of canvassing so she will be a great help to us. Lunch was at our unofficial Corbridge  branch office, Tea and Tipple.
